Totally FREE Employee Perks


Keeping employees happy is key, but the BIG perks giants like Google, Facebook and others are dishing out (from free meals to unlimited vacations) is nearly impossible for a small business.  However, there are free employee perks you can introduce without bankrupting your company.  Here they are…


1. Flexible Hours


This is one of the most popular employee perks.  One study found that 42% percent of working adults would give up part of their salary to have more flexible hours.  Some small business owners might be nervous about doing this. Can you trust your workers to not abuse the privilege?  Will they still get their work done?  But trust has a major impact on making your employees happy and will go a long way in motivating them to get their work done.


2. A Pet at Work


Who wouldn’t love the chance to have a pet at work?  Getting one will make your employees happier and also boost mood and lower stress, improve relationships between co-workers, and stimulate their creativity.  But first, make sure that your small business is appropriate for a pet and that no one in your office has severe allergies to animals.


3. Guilt-Free Nap Time


Naps have been shown to have a positive effect on the brain.  You too can adapt a pro-nap environment.  Set aside an empty office, maybe with a donated couch, to create a nap zone.  Let workers benefit from your snooze-friendly environment.  All they need to do is to tap out and log back in when back to work.  Knowing they can re-energize by taking a power nap can go a long way towards making employees happier.


4. Eliminate the BOSS mentality


Studies show that a bad or incompetent boss is a main reason workers are unhappy and a good leader naturally has the opposite effect.  You might not think of yourself as a perk, but you can become one.  If you make sure you follow our advice to treat others the way you want to be treated, you can become a major force that keeps employees coming in to work happy.  If you continue to work at being the kind of small business owner who improves a company culture from the top down, you’ll find when people ask your workers, “What’s the best thing about working where you do?” they might very well answer, “My employer.”
